Honest drama about real struggle
2 July 2016 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Demure drama about the life of a single unemployed mother in a working- class neighborhood. Jerez de la Frontera, one of the areas with more unemployment of Spain is the scenario where this story about struggle and despair is located. The film is not known for its complexity or technical part, but by its sincerity and the excellent interpretation of Natalia de Molina, which earned her the most important award in Spanish cinema, the Goya award. Some minor roles as the son or the neighbor Maria end up completing a short but very successful cast. Advisable to understand the situation in which the economic crisis has left many areas of Spain and other countries.
